The by the I subjoin you the article, which, M 1 [ ^ ^manatee from the foreign cilice, ia of great inv 1 pertance, as giving the view taken by the Kngliah j I government. The Ulobt of the 24th says:? "A morning cotemporary has publish*'! what pur- ( porta to be a narrative of the prnceedings at a cabinet council held yesterday Wear* told that the mini*- < try mot to deliberate on certain announcements made by the Kursian and French government*. Tho?e an- ! nouneement* concerned the intentions of the ??o power*, respectively, to inrad?

This latter statement can be only a lucky guess, strengthened, perhaps. by such Information as was at the disposal of the irVDCO ftUU UUIBMU l UJUK-BISB. nciVMUHUg >HH racy ol the ittp stuted to have bwa taken by the latter. it wae e??y to reckon on the oc'y answer that could bo made by an Knglish government. We ihall not dwell upon the causes which wiU naturally disincline the Kuglish cabinet to entertain any Kuch extreme premonition a* is "aid to bare been laid before it. Nor need we point nut the obvious interest : of two conservative powers in placing their attack on ' a suspeoted neighbor on the moat plausible and popular ground. It is ruough tor us that the cooduetof tha Prussia* court his given too much justlflcatic n for t the measures ut present in agitation, and that if tha swt-rd were drawn by It use i* and K ranee. It wold be I drawn in dtience of treaty obligations and guaranteed ! rights By tbe treaty of last July the contracting powers bound themselves to do all in their power to put a stop to tbe war raging beyood the Kyder. The King | of Denmark was permitted by that treaty to reduoe flcbleswig by aria* but uot to euter liolstein without previous appeal to the German confederation That treaty has now received the ratification of all the German gofernmentx. But us ye! the King uf Denmark ha* borne all its butden. and reaped none of its advantage*. Yielding to the solicitation* of an ally, who was anxious to respect even the ex.iggerated sus' ceptlbKlriesofUeiujaEy he has refrained from calling I on the confederation to u>e even its preliminary | effort* i"r the reduction ol UoUtein. lie nan scrupulour ly rc*| ccted the troutier that separates the !

At this moment an ' fllce Is open la Berlin, under the very eyes ot tbe l'nissian cabinet, for the enlistment of volunteers for tfeblt**). liolstein. All this, we say, is so eminently d.scrt-diMble to a power which haa pledged itself to endeavor to restore the peace betTeen Denmark ai.d the Duchies, that we need not wonder If OlDrr courm -tlte upon ?o wean a pom'- iu '.lie cunrte1 ti-r of a rival Fiance and Kupnia hold themselves liour.d by tile trealiea ?>f be last century to guarantee Scble wtff to the King of Denmark. and operations for the maintenance ot that guarantee could certainly not he met nii violation* ot national law. H> deeply regret that the Prussian government ha* failed to discover how powerfully their connivance at the continued proxecution of the war in llolsteln ' tends to alienate Kaglioh s;, mpatbie*. Pru?ela may be ' ! ijuite pure that the public opinion of England hap all along been adverse to the (ierman Invasion ef th<* r>uchim ?lie may also be pure that the English government will neverar<|iiie*<?e in the reduction of Denmurk to a position of such lnsignifiraiicefas would, virtually. make her a dependent Kusnian principality. England hah already given abundant proof of her good will to her constitutional and Protestant ally. We have dene to by dippuading the King of Denmark from attempting the military conquest of Holstein. We have done ?o a second time by substituting pa -il r? monstrances for the measures recommended by 1 Franco and Russia But Prussia may depend that thin nor J will on our part will n><t be perpetually available to silence the just complaint* of other power* Her i ereeverance in anything but a straightforward and ninast policy ran ooly end in her being subjected to a verj dipegr^eable pressure on th? part of France and Uvssla. whi h. with ail Its favorable dispositions, the Krgiish cabinet can have neither :he will oar the power tc prevent. All the morning papers of to-day, (Friday,) devote 1? ading iirticle* to the subject, ami copy the article from the Tiuut. England, you observe, refuses to u?e a threat , towards Pruat-ia, being aware that lluaeia and France m*ke the I'anish peace a pretext for f'irthermg their own ultetior views.

I* rom tbe London Post, October 'J3 ] Some of the characteristics ?>f juries are ilUa (rated indirectly and incidentally by the im|>ortant h< law entitled the Fugitive Slave bill, which was tx recently passed in the Fedral Legislature of the U I'nitett States. I'ntil the introduction of this bill cl the slave-owners were obliged to resort to a species c? of lrjibl machinery which was found qaite tnetfi- hi c>nt for the recovery of th? ir absconding bonds- ei men and bondswomen When the fugitive w.ts at at length tracked to his place of r fugeinoneof the m free States, the owner or the owner's agent, as it w might be, on claioung the individual, was met by a g< retusal to return. To eftect by compulsion it what could not be otherwise managed, the d< datMMM had to recur, of course, to the u am horny of the courts of law. Here the w great question wirn the ideality of the slave, arri, c as a qutsiion of fact, it belonged to the decision of h n jury. In a free State, a jury composed of men u WHtmly preootsewed agitins'. the whole system of ai slavery, and often formally pledged to effect the ui abolition of it, would naturally have all t>ieir sym- w pathies enl sted on the side of the poor runaway, ni and their keenest antipathy excited against his It pursuer i-eriawiy, aympamy una ar.upamy were hi not auppoaed to be the preper grounds lor a verdict. 1 The jury, too, pronounce by \ irtue, us it is ?Aid, cj of their oaths Nevertheless, it eo hap|>ened that ta the slaveowners were exceedingly dissatisfied with thew verdict*. They were invarthly against ol the claimant; invariably th*y ignored the iden- <n tuy of the respondent. This could not be borne vi for ever by the slave-owner The increasing l) activity of the abolitionists rendered the c*ae more c intolerable, fur, in proportion as the enemies of <li slavery became more and more stirring, the slives k lied fmm their masters more an.I more freou?-nt!y a and readily The owners, continually baulked ia | < the attempt to regain poaaession of them, and at Mlbbtanmy instances to pnvnt their tl'.'ht t< and their evation into the free tetritory of tl?e h; Union, proposed and carried n Inw which entirely tl titers the machinery for recovering the fugi'ivea. ?li Instead of the before requir d verdict of a j'iry. V in their oaths, all that ij now teceaaary is m the oath of the claimant himself Oil the il strength of this species of identification, t!ie if uti ordinate slave ia surrendered * by the bur- A boim* Mate, and handed over to the control if from which he had tlej with horror Already tha ai new regulation* hav? been enfor:ed with unrelent- bj iti3 stnctiiefa, iind the fluve oaraera are enjoying a si ?lar<ugand ostentations triumph. Aa far aa the n nit1 nficatioii of me fugitive is concerned, no rea- at sonaMe douWt can be eut-rtHined th ?i, in mi -1 .1. cases, the new test of the claimant's affirmation 1* #1 calculated to be practically effective.

The measure designed to strengthen the %? constitutional urovision for the extradition of "per- si sons bound to labor," became operative on receiv- tl ing the President's assent; and it has already been f< enforced in one or two instances, of which we can- h not read without pain, or without a lively sense of d< the destructive agencies which, though mitigated 1) for the time, are still working to disintegrate the a composite structure of the gr*at federation. fi There whs a period, as old Americans tell us, pi when a feeling, widely dilit at from that which s< manifests it6eTf at present, prevailed in the South* L era States regarding the escape of a slave, it In those days the planter gave his negroea law. h If one of them ran away and was recovered, c he was Hogged, or worse; but if he succeeded p in crossing the border he had regained his na- ft tural rights, and the owner left him alone, tl The point of view teems, however, to have n shifted, concurrently with that singular alte- v ration of sentiment on every tiling relating to v slavery which has been developed in the South fi within the last half century. As n susceptible ii pride in its domestic institutions took the place of g regretful acquiescence in hn inavoidable evil, the t] flight of a negro assumed a ditlerent aspect; and a of late years the activity of the abolition societies ii in enticing a^vay the slave*, and the tacit coun- n tenance which the free Slates accorded to these v proceedings, have excited the fiercest resentment p among the Southern proprietary. At the instance o of their sister governments, the Southern legis- t latures on the border adopted the severest pre- d cautionary enactments, and, with the uid of pri- I vate vigilance, ihey maintained a systematic t watcli tor fugitives from the Delaware to the e Mississippi, particularly in the vicinity of the two t great routes which conduct northwards from the t South through Cincinnati and lialt'-nore. in spite, e however, of all the measures of u-r unscrupulous n oligarchy, the annual average of escaped negroea t was extraordinarily l.irge. Once icross the fron- r tier, the runaway was virtually safe. Ths fede- r ral constitution declared, indeed, tint his mister's right to his serviced sbould Dot be ex:inguishe<F by hi* flight?hut then he w-is always entitled prma facte to the local privilege of the /?ibcnt corjiit, and the question of identity, which was instantly mooted on hii being brought up, nad to be determined, like other questions of fact, by a jury of Northern citizens, la hardly a single instance has such a jury been kn?wn to return a verdict ia favor of the own;r. The power of reclaiming a fugitive negro had, in truth, ceased to exist, and multitudes of colored persons were at large in the great Northern cities, whose sole < title to freedom was the impossibility of successfully attacking it. Hut the measure just passed by Congress deprives these unhappy men of their only safeguard. It withdraws from local jurisdiction and from the cognizance of jurors, any claim which may be advanced to their jwrrsons. A citizen of a Southern State, after making oath that 6uch or such an individual is his slave, may arrest him at once on Northern ground. The case is then brought befors the District Court? i tribunal which. In subordination to the Supreme Court of the United States, adjudges interprovincial questions, and administer* the imperial law of the I'nion?and it is decidedly summarily, on allidavits, by the presiding functionary, who may be a Southerner, and who, at all eveuts, is little affected by the public opinion of the locality. uiiicriuutiiny lur iiir u ttii<{uiiuy ui uir t muii, the three or four colored i<ersons who were first selected for arrest and condemnation appear to * have been long in the enjoyment of liberty, and J long settled in the places where they were seized. * It is possible thut thc> may have owed the misera- * ble distinction of priority to the facilities for ducovery and capture which their mode of life afforded; but, at the came time, it is not improbtble that, in choosing for their earliest victim* individuals engaged openly in the avocations of freemen, the Blave proprietors may have been deliberately hurling the deadliest of intuits at the hated North. The seizure tirst efircted sterns to have been determined upon with the view of testing the sufficiency of the protection given to Southern property by the new statute. One James Hamlet, h small shopkeeperin New York, wat> captured, condemned, and removed to Baltimore in less than thirty-six hours. Immediately on his arrival in the capital of Maryland, his owner announced that his Northern friends might redeem him for a moderate sum The money was instantly raised by subscription, and the r\nscmed Hamlet was brought back in triumph to New _ York.
